CLEAR Counselor: "Coming in from the cold- With a passion for life and knowing that the struggle for empowerment in self and community demands focus. My position here at Imani Unidad represents a natural progression in my effort to be of service. As the group coordinator for Peer to Peer (P2P), I have the unique pleasure of helping to shape a community asset that I rely upon for my own sustenance. My position isn’t mine I like to say, but rather it is the product of the people entrusted to me while I am here.”

Born and raised in South Bend I have a deep, abiding respect for and commitment to my community. I lost both my older brother and sister to AIDS. I began working in this field as a volunteer covering Intensive Out-Patient groups which eventually led to employment. Through this work I gained a tremendous amount of experience in not only substance abuse, but the correlation to risk behaviors that lead to HIV infection. I eventually found my way to Imani Unidad. I am happy to be a part of their passionate mission of spreading hope through education, power through prevention and liberation through advocacy.
